SHOP TALK: Worn Journal celebrates release of first book at Victoire

 Shop Talk is written by Ottawa Magazine editor Dayanti Karunaratne and Ottawa Magazine account executive and fashion maven.
I won’t claim to have read every issue of Worn, the alt-fashion bi-annual publication that mixes pop culture and personal essays, feminist theory with straight up quirk. But I have seen it, and right away something resonated. Then, years later when it went from a zine to a more polished book, and the accolades starting pouring in, I started to look for it. (Not the kind of mag you find at the grocery store, but that’s part of the fun. A search for Worn will take you to all sorts of fun shops.)

And when I heard it was releasing a book of highlights from the past few years at Victoire, well, I needed to know more/spread the word/get the book.
Herewith, a glimpse of The Worn Archive, which editor Serah-Marie McMahon describes as “a 400+ page manifesto” comprised of chapters that focus on various aspects of fashion — its fun side; fashion as art, identity, politics; and most of all, that fashion is a personal medium for self-expression.
To pick up a copy — and meet other “Wornettes” — swing by Victoire this Saturday.

Vintage Tunes & Stiff Drinks: a cocktail and vintage record listening party
